MADLOM is a non-profit arts center and interdisciplinary laboratory dedicated to the creative development of each student through music, dance, theater, spoken word, film and video. We strive for a developmentally appropriate, rewarding and joyful process for each student, with an emphasis on artistic literacy, creative expression, leadership and ultimately, self-confidence.
MADLOM offers classes for students of all ages, and abilities in a non-competitive, collaborative environment, including integrated classes for special needs students.
The Montclair Academy of Dance and Laboratory of Music was founded in 1998, by Artistic Director Maya Milenovic Workman (interdisciplinary media artist and choreographer) and Executive Director Reggie Workman (Legendary Jazz Musician, educator). We are dedicated to enriching the lives of children, teens, and adults through the arts. We focus on creative development through dance, music, theater, and visual arts. Our teachers provide established dance and music techniques and strive for a developmentally appropriate and rewarding process for each student, with an emphasis on creativity, critical thinking, and confidence. A partnership is cultivated between students and teachers to develop artistic movement, music and literacy skills, and individual creative expression. This ability to look creatively at anything and find fresh inspiration in everything is a goal of our work.
